The library in Crediton now has plug-in energy monitor packs
that can be taken out free of charge, just like a book on your
The pack consists of the monitor, a set of instructions on how
to calculate energy use, the cost of running the appliance and the
carbon it generates.
There is also a contact page for the Energy Savings Trust and a very
informative booklet 'Climate Change - simple things you can do to
make a difference' from the GREEN BOOKS GUIDES series.
DCC has 250 of these packs around the county, of which 5 are
based in Crediton. These 5 are all out at the moment, so are
already proving popular.
Bea who runs Crediton Library says that this is a pilot project
for DCC and if it proves to be popular they will try some other
schemes - as yet unspecified.
